The last neighbourhood Daniela and I stayed in while visiting Tokyo, Roppongi Hills was the closest to feeling like our home in downtown Vancouver. The high glass towers, clean streets, and upscale stores were a stark contrast to our first stay in Shimokitazawa. But for what it lacks in the small community feel, it makes up for in its art galleries, museums, and cafes.
We checked out the Mori Art Museum, which had a wonderful exhibit on Andy Warhol—and an amazing view of the city from one of its top floors. There were a couple gems for cafes and restaurants, which we had to dig a little bit for in the less popular streets. It was a common experience we had in Tokyo. If you’re willing to walk just a little more, or be a little adventurous going to a place with no English menu, we always had a great time.
